What model saw is this? There are a few things that could be wrong. One if equipped your muffler screen could be plugged up. two you could have a fouled fuel filter not allowing enough fuel to get to the carburetor. You could also have a pin hole or tear in the fuel line. Worst case scenario is that the carburetor is plugged and will need to be rebuilt.
